Data annotation display format

When I was using syncfusion ver.,
datetime column data was nicely formatted even without the need to add format attribute
        eg: col.Field("UploadDate").HeaderText("Upload Date").AllowEditing(false).Width(85).Add();

format was read from Model data annotation, eg :
        [Required, DataType(DataType.DateTime)]
        [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss}")]
        public DateTime UploadDate { get; set; }

But after I upgraded syncfusion from ver. to,
All datetime column in my grid is losing its format which mean data annotattion DisplayFormat was ignored
(data displayed as default javascript datetime value, eg: Thu Dec 01 2016 00:00:00 GMT+0700 (SE Asia Standard Time))

Is there any changes/fix about this?
