Known issues

With TYPO3 10.0 the StringFrontend has been removed after being deprecated in TYPO3 9.2.
It is recommended to use the VariableFrontend instead. However, the VariableFrontend serializes the cache input per default unless the corresponding cache backend implements the TransientBackendInterface. To this extend the elasticcache-extension changes to the use of the TransientBackendInterface with v2.0 to allow insertion of valid json for cross-platform usage.
