I am trying to download opencv c api source code and compile it , so i can use it in Raspberry pi I found that C API is was designed in OpenCV 1.x. Now it is supported for backward compatibility only. It is depricated and may be removed in the future.

So is OpenCV C api outdated or I can download the older version's source code ??

C API is fully supported by current 2.4.3 version on OpenCV, so you can use the latest version of library now. But using of old C style API is not recommended. Also you can get problems with some new features, that was added to library in 2.x versions. Most of them have C++ API only and are not available in C programs.
