Can Triptronic have variable shift programs?

Would be nice, because I find myself only using the downshifting, because it upshifts by itself.

The tip has been revised as one of the '07 changes.

For 2007, the Boxster and Boxster S can be optioned with the revised Tiptronic S transmission, which features new hydraulics and electronics to improve responsiveness, and also provides variable shift programs. Combined with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the sporting characteristics of both these mid-engined roadsters are enhanced. With the Sport mode engaged, up- and downshifts are only made at engine speeds above 3000 rpm, and downshifts for engine braking are subject to less delay and take place at higher engine speeds. In the manual-shift mode, up-shifts are not made automatically when the engine reaches its rev limiter.

The Tipper has always had "variable shift programs" in that the shift points, up and down, will vary depending on how hard the car is driven. The older cars, like my '99 only have 5 programs, but later cars have many more.
Didn't know that about the '07s not upshifting at redline, though.
