Version 1.3.15 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/CHANGES starts with:

    Fix bug introduced in 1.3.15 that caused greylist retransmissions
	to be counted by the DCC server as separate messages contributing
	to the "bulkness" of a message.
    If /var/dcc/log is neither readable nor searchable by 'other', then
	create log files with the same 'group' permissions as the directory
	instead of the old default of 600.  This allows the application of
	cgi scripts to the main whiteclnt and log files.
    `dccd -T ALL` no longer works.  It never made much sense and continues
	to cause confusion.
    Dccifd in proxy mode no longer requires blanks after colons in SMTP
	commands.  Problem reported by Martin Pala.
    Fix dccifd proxy mode crash on mail messages without bodies reported
	by Martin Pala.
    Complain about bad host name and other errors in whiteclnt files
	every 30 minutes instead of every 5 minutes.
    Allow whiteclnt files to be read-only with a new locking scheme.
    Use Milter.macros.eom in sendmail 8.13 so that the ${dcc_isspam}, and
	${dcc_notspam}, ${dcc_userdir} macros can be set by sendmail.cf
	rules that examin headers.  This might also allow some hack_mc
	settings to be used with delay_checks.
    As suggested with discussions with Martin Pala, the thresholds for
	quick flooding among servers are now non-linear.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and install
this version.
