MF showing created date instead of start publishing date

Good morning

I created a lot of articles already, for example for birthdays, I can work almost a year upfront.

let's assume I create all news-items today, august 13.
the person's birthday is at august 15.

So I have in the publishing-tab in Joomla:
Start Publishing 2020-08-15 00:00:01
Finish Publishing 2020-11-01 00:00:01
Created Date 2020-08-13 10:39:12

So on august 15, 2 days from now, MiniFrontpage will show the the birthday-item. That is correct
BUT for the date, MF will display 2020-08-13. the daye from now. Because it's using the "created date" instead of the "start publishing" date.

How can we fix this?
Now I need to modify all news-items again, and change the "created date" to "start publishing" date.

To me, there is no logic in that. "Start publishing" date is more important I guess.

I'm using MF 3.0.2

    Good morning
    I saw there was an unpdate:

    Version 3.0.2 - 07-02-2020
    + Added static file versioning for better update-safe
    - Filter by modified date now will show modified date instead of created date

    Shoudn't that be the "publish date"?
    That is the date we choose when we want to show some topics
