Nope, it's not true; the Xft code is not and has never been in
mainline. Some third-party 'emacs-snapshot' packages taken from the
XFT_JHD_BRANCH and later from the emacs-unicode-2 branch have
appeared here and there, but Ubuntu's official emacs-snapshot
package has (to the best of my knowledge) always been identical to
mine and thus never supported Xft.
