In current microcontrast branch I intoduced a new adjuster which allows to limit the effect of Microcontrast and Sharpening (especially useful for RL-Sharpening) to regions which exceed the amount of contrast set by the adjuster.

I would like to get some more tests for this new feature (which I think is really useful). @gaaned92 already included the microcontrast branch in his nightly windows buils (thanks for that )
For reference, please have a look at the github issue
I already tested with a lot of raw files to find good default settings. Here are first results
