Subject: DCC version 1.3.98/2.3.98 released

Version 1.3.98 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.98 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Change the DCC server to not sign responses to anonymous clients with
	the client's sequence numbers in protocol version 9.
    Add `dccd -T wlist` and `cdcc "trace wlist on"` to help find failures
	by clients to whitelist IP addresses and other checksums
	in /var/dcc/whitelist.
    Let whitelisting by the MTA, DCC server, or other whiteclnt lines override
	"option spam-trap-accept" and "option spam-trap-reject" whiteclnt
	lines as suggested by Horst Scheuermann.
    Finally document in the man pages parameters including %CIP that can be
	used in dccifd and dccm rejection messages.

/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.
