Version 1.3.60 of the DCC source is in  and

Commercial version 2.3.60 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Fix confusion in flooding connection accounting.
    Work around new Fedore Core 6 gcc Fortify buffer over-non-flow bug
	reported by Joseph Breu by reducing the size of server-to-server
	messages by 1 byte.
    Reduce the number of socket() and bind() system calls in dccm and dccifd.
    Close unused sockets in dccm and dccifd after bursts of mail such
	as dictionary attacks.
    Prevent complaints during flooding from between commercial and free
	versions about bad protocol versions.

/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.
