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

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.
