DHTML Menu

I now get…
DHTML Menu 7.x-1.0-beta1
Project not supported: This project is no longer supported, and is no longer available for download. Disabling everything included by this project is strongly recommended!
Includes: DHTML Menu
…when I check update status. I disabled the module and now my menus no longer expand on hover. Anyone know the wisdom behind this “strong recommendation”? If it works, why disable?
I have it only because I could never get my block menus to autoexpand with Superfish and NiceMenus. Without DHTMLMenu, submenus are either always visible or hidden and non-functional.
HELP please! Thanks.
