Issue with Perspective Table Showing seconds since epoch instead of formatted date

I have a table in perspective thats supposed to be showing me a date in a column, but instead it seems to be showing seconds since the epoch.
I have the column render set to date, and the format specified but it doesn’t seem to change anything.

Thanks for reporting this.
This is a known issue that has a fix already in the code base that will be in the 8.0.3 version.

Now the field property is correctly specified to target my column named “Date” (you can see that the column is now rendered correctly):

After changing the dateFormat property to render as date and time:
