Early Beta of CS4 Sharpening Panel

Once get this tool in final shape, I'll do the same for High Pass sharpening. The work at retooling all of the TLR sharpeners: capture sharpeners, creative sharpeners, and output sharpeners to use panels and allow for the same sort of live preview.
The early beta is open to all. The final tool will be available freely to the digital photography community.
Comments and suggests will be appreciated!
