I agree with _prev and _next needing to be swapped. As mentioned in the release note, I had quickly added swipe recognition and missed that backwards swiping behavior. As for rotating the touch device, I don't quite see what you mean about image positioning/scaling. It is working as I would expect for me (Safari/IOS). Perhaps you are referring to images being at the top of the screen when in portrait orientation. The original design was for my own use and was totally targeting desktop machines. It was designed that the image would be tight against the top, next to the controls. I suppose it would be good to change that behavior and have the image centered vertically. I could add it as an option. The problem then becomes .. where to display the captions. I think it should be close to the image but don't really want it jumping around.
