We have tried to unify the various ways of setting up DataTables, but there
have been changes in how dates are handled recently, and it appears likely
the case you found has been either broken, or always was broken.
Can you can use new Data(...) without quotes? JSON notation doesn't allow
new Date() constructors, so that is why the "Date(...)" format is supported
at least there. When you use JSON.parse() you are just turning the string
into an anonymous JS object, so if you can use the anonymous JS object
instead, with new Date() constructors, that would be the simplest
