Upcoming events limit to the current month makes the plugin useless

I'm working to a website for an organization that creates trip events 2 time per year.

Registration to these events starts months before the actual event occurs.
Registration are also closed before the event start.
A can't change event's date, with the registration dates, because it would confuse users.

I need to show a list of all upcoming events (not so many, but most of the times they are far later the current month.
Why the developer have created this limit?
If this is a concern for the developer is always better to leave the option to the user: is way simpler to just add a checkbox in the widget/settings/anywhere you prefer and leave to us the choice.

Without the option to show events that occurs months later than current month, this plugin won't be of any use.

Thanks.
