Version 1.2.7 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dccd.tar.Z  and
http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/source/dccd.tar.Z

The CHANGES file starts with:

    Fix serious bug in resolving DCC server host names by dccm and dccifd.
    Add "temporary" to default greylist rejection messages.
    Fix greylisting of null messages.
    Add misc/fetch-testmsg-whitelist
    Improve compression/suppression of flooded checksums to reduce the
	database size and bandwidth requirements 10-50% for DCC servers that
	see fewer than 20K DCC ops/day.  Tests have produced conflicting
	results.  The full effects are not seen unless flooding peers
	install this version.

For dccm and dccifd clients, the first listed fix is fairly important.

The last should help stressed small servers.
