Yes, it is true - Canon has largely been using very similar 18mp sensors in their APS-C cameras for several years. But, it is a very good sensor design, and has proven itself thoroughly over that time. There is some indication that the edition in the 100D does have some quality tweaks, but I wouldn't expect miracles.

There's a good does of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" that goes along with this. Now, the rest of the world hasn't stood still, and there are other sensors that might exceed Canon's output in certain edge cases. And you can bet that Canon does have a new and improved technology coming eventually. But what we've got is still pretty darn good.
