Vaadin 8: where has Grid.Column.setConverter() gone?

I need to display and edit numbers with a fixed number of decimals in a grid (and elsewhere).  A localized number field would be nice, but I digress.

For the purpose of editing in place, I had to write a converter, which is fine.  I want numbers to look the same whether in the grid or during editing.  The display of the grid itself does not use the editor converter, and there is no way that I can find to rely on setConverter() as used to be possible in v7 (click on the link!).  Since I already have the converter, and this used to work, maybe I'm just missing something silly.

TextField bodyWeightField = new TextField();
        StringToBodyWeightConverter bodyWeightConverter = new StringToBodyWeightConverter(null, "not a number");
        Column<WeighInAthlete, Float> bwColumn = grid.addColumn(WeighInAthlete::getBodyWeight);
            .setCaption("Body Weight")
                .bind(WeighInAthlete::getBodyWeight, WeighInAthlete::setBodyWeight));

@Henri Sara
 I don't have the problem anymore since I migrated to the Vaadin 8.1 because we can now provide a ValueProvider + PresentationProvider
=> Grid.addColumn(ValueProvider<T, V> valueProvider, ValueProvider<V, String> presentationProvider)

For my part, the problem is solved
