Yes, the protocol name has changed. Newer versions are called TLS.

However, please keep in mind that the term "SSL" is commonly used to
describe "secure" connections and related technologies, regardless of
the specific protocol being used for that security. Squid still uses
that classic "SSL" terminology, especially in old documentation and
code. In most cases where exact identifiers are not required, the
letters "SSL" and "TLS" are used interchangeably.
