My build date is Dec 2nd so I'll be asking the dealer to check into this when I take it in this evening!
A few full throttle acceleration runs from a stop is the suggested remedy. As the issue in question seems to be the first gear clutch, there's no need to accelerate to much more than a modest speed.
If you're pretty happy with the way yours is running, I don't know if I would recommend the update. As mentioned, I thought pre-update test cars I drove performed better.
As an aside, mine came off the trailer with 100 miles and a note from Ford that it was used for test purposes. Must've been one of the first off the line with the new software and was tested for that reason. Surprised it passed.
