It is a manual transmission, and I think Ford made it too smooth in this realm. Way too much slippage on the clutch pack, bound to kill longevity/service life of the clutch pack. The previous software was much better/less smooth, more like a real manual, in this realm, which is why Ford needs to offer the consumer choices in software for the DCT and get away from trying to make one size/software fit all.
