[RW] 

Yes, s/has been/became/ helps, but I still think that it implies that TLV 1.2 is the current recommended version of TLS.

Perhaps something along the lines of:

TLSv1.2 became the recommended version for IETF protocols in 2008 (now obsoleted by TLSv1.3 in 2018), providing sufficient time to transition away from older versions."
