PHPMailer 5.2 has now been deprecated and PHPMailer 6.0 has been released. Minimum requirements have been increased to PHP 5.5 and it now has a namespace, which will require changes in WP's use of it.

As the WordPress project is a long way from requiring PHP 5.5 as a minimum, updating to PHPMailer 6 isn't on the cards, unless somebody wants to maintain a fork that's compatible with PHP 5.2.

Closing as maybelater. We'll get there eventually.
