Version 1.2.15 of the DCC source is in  and

The CHANGES file starts with:
Changes to the Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse source.

    Ensure the mtime of /var/dcc/whiteclnt.dccw files changes to stop
	endless reparsing on some Linux systems.
    Resolve inconsistency in dccproc whitelist vs. -t many noted by
	Dawn Endico by making whitelisting always produce an exit code of 0.
    Put absolute path on cdcc in misc/stats-get as pointed out by
	Kevin Gagel.
    Make dccm and dccifd log file size configurable as suggested by
	Furlan Campos.
    Fix bug reported by Jim Carroll that kept mail from being rejected
	when first sent to a spam.
    Allow large CIDR blocks to be white- or blacklisted in whiteclnt files.
    Fix dccifd -p bug reported by Christopher Bodenstein.
    Fix "continue not asking greylist" log message that should be
	"continue not asking DCC" reported by Jorg Bielak.
    Fix ./configure script in dccproc tarball that was creating a bogus
	RUNDIR value for dccifd.
    Add `./configure --with-max-log-size=KB` as requested by Furlan Campos.
    The proof of concept CGI scripts now
	deal with per-user logs for user that receive enough spam that their
	    log directories have 20,000 entries.
	support the per-user greylist log options for whiteclnt files
	    described in the dcc man page near the description of "include"
	support locking of per-user whiteclnt files with a line of
	    "#webuser locked"
    Fix output file data corruption bug reported by Chris Mikkelson.
    Change default dccm greylist SMTP status code as suggested by Gary Mills.

If you have previously installed 1.2.12 or newer, then
/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should make it easy to fetch, build, and
install this version.
The automatically generated /var/dcc/dcc_conf-new might make it easy
to generate a new dcc_con file for turning on greylisting.
