I'm sorry... life has been hectic around here. I haven't had a chance to work on the plugin for a while. But good news, it's pretty much all done. I'm just working on the documentation now. I hope to have version 2.4 posted before this weekend.
Ok, version 2.4 is now live. It now does a natural sort on the select options.
