(From what I recall, no. At least that was the case a long while back.)
Natural sort cannot be disabled and affects all text sorting.
Sorting is generally faster in Everything 1.5 compared to Everything 1.4
Everything 1.5 uses stable binary sort for less than 256 items and a queued merge sort, giving better overall multi-threaded performance.
Everything 1.4 uses a sub divided mixture of multi-threaded qsort and merge sort and can suffer from unbalanced sub division (one subdivision sort can complete early and that thread will sit there doing nothing for the rest of the sort).
the sort order cannot change easily. The entire database would need to be rebuilt.
