Version 1.2.12 of the DCC source is in  and

The CHANGES file starts with:

    Report checksums in greylist embargoed mail to a DCC server while
	waiting for the embargo to expire.
    Recognize more than 1 GByte of RAM on Solaris systems.
    Fix bug in stats-get not counting queries pointed out by Yury Razbegin.
    Change the default greylist -G "white" value from 30 to 63 days.
    dccm and dccifd now include the greylist triple checksum in per-user
	log files.
    Fix bugs in dccifd C interface routine pointed out by Stephen Misel.
    Fix dccd whitelist bug observed by Gary Mills.
    Fix bug in 1.2.8 through 1.2.11 that stops flooding of brand new
	reports of bulk mail that is not spam.
    Automatically generate /var/dcc/dcc_conf-new from existing dcc_conf
	to aid installation of greylisting.

The greylist counting change could be important, particularly for 
larger sites.  It can let the very first copy of spam be rejected.
The automatically generated dcc_conf-new should make installing 
greylisting easier.

The fix in flooding is important for DCC servers.

There is a also a new script /var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc that is
supposed to fetch, configure, build, and install new versions. 
I would appreciate comments about it.
