Don't. Other software use this package. I dont know why
but people like running old software.

Please dont fight over this, we all have different points of view and I
bared mine no need to get all crazy or fight about this.

I feel the correct way is to have it updated to the latest repository,
 because old repo is going to die any time soon with out notice.

moderators any words?

Its better to keep it updated... the developer will stop using sourceforge
at any given time...

*August 2, 2014*

DevIL now has a home at GitHub. It may find a more permanent home there in
the future. Also feel free to Like us on Facebook.
