According to the documentation, data-direction="reverse" should make the form show up from right to left (reversed transition).
But seems like it is not happening that way, at least in my case (I am using official release 1.0)
I guess the problem is in line 3220
type: type && type.length && type.toLowerCase() || "get",
transition: $this.jqmData( "transition" ),
direction: $this.jqmData( "direction" ),
these options are then merged with settings in changePage(). The settings use the key "reverse" (bool) to determine the transition direction, not "direction"
Hope this help
