Hi , All
 
I have been confused by this question for a long time !

why doesn't jpct-ae support the texture that its heigth isn't power of 2  ?  sometimes we have to scale  bitmap to meet this restriction and this will cause lost of bitmap 's details  . I think it's not necessary if the GPU support OpenGL
es 2.0 !

thanks .

It is necessary even when using ES 2.0. The current beta version adds a class for supporting npot textures, but not all devices support them and using them puts some restrictions on the textures, for example no mip-mapping is possible on them.
