When we use distributed caching, it's inevitable to serialize the contents of the cache.
How do you serialize the cached content? Normally, serializing an object to byte would be the first choice. This is also the implementation of EasyCaching.
Serialization use EasyCaching currently offers 4 serialization options, BinaryFormatter, Json, MessagePack and Protobuf.
The BinaryFormatter is the default, without adding any third-party serialized packages.
There is a Breaking Change you should take a look.
In the version of < 0.6.0, only one serialization method can be used. Since EasyCaching supports the creation of multiple different Provider instances, support for different serialization methods for different providers is essential, so >= 0.6.0 version, named serialization selection is supported.
