[ANN] Soma 2.8.2

* A better way of balancing Radio 3 using -af filter
* Local config file is sourced whenever a station is played (almost on-the-fly)

The volume boost for Radio 3 is a better way of doing it and it can be adjusted from -200dB to +60dB. I've set the default to +10 which seems fine. It's on by default so remember to turn your mixer down before after upgrading and testing it.

This can be added to ~/.soma/options.conf and the value adjusted as needed. Set to "" to disable it completely:
AFFILTER="-softvol -af volume=10"

Now whenever a station is changed, or stopped/started using spacebar, the local options.conf is read so that settings can be tested without having to restart soma.

Thanks Dive! I love this little app.

By the way, isn't there a tar -xvf $PROGRAM-$VERSION.tgz missing in your slackbuild? I have to manually untar the source code folder for the slackbuild to work.

Updated to 2.8.1

AUTOBALVOL can only really work together with -softvol or it gets _very_ loud.
