Version 1.3.57 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.57 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

Improvements in predictions of the required hash table size are
important for DCC servers with less than 2 GByte of RAM.  Relaxing
the 2 GByte limit on database size for 32-bit systems is important
to servers with more than 3 GBytes.  Also note `updatedcc -K`.

The CHANGES file starts with:
    Fix bug in libexec/fetchblack adding a local blacklist file
	reported by Krzysztof Snopek.
    Make the system host name be the default value of `dccifd -D`
	so that local user name for per-user logs and whiteclnt files
	is "user" given SMTP recipient address "user@host.example.com"
	on the system named user.host.example.
    Support wildcards so that `dccifd '-D*example.com'` will take
	"user" as the local name for per-user logs and whiteclnt files
	vien SMTP recipient address user@host.exaple.com.
    Fix bug in version 1.3.56 of dbclean in computing the hash table size
	when upgrading from 1.3.42 reported by Domenico Diacono.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and
install the commercial or free version, depending on the .updatedcc_pfile
file, unless you have installed a version of Linux with the broken
default `sort` collating sequence since last upgrading.  If so, an
easy way to get the old updatedcc script working is to delete the
entire /var/dcc/build/dcc directory before running updatedcc.
