The vertical lines are not shown even in the default (light) themes.

Probably this is not a bug. This is common for all OutlineView components, and I think that it has always looked like this.

Reassigning. Martin, please evaluate. Thank you.

This is not specific to any L&F. Vertical lines are not implemented in Outline at all.
Although this may be seen as a defect, the fact that nobody complained about this during several years means, that it's not much sever.
Changing to an enhancement.

I would also prefer to see the support for painting of tree lines in OutlineView. It is sometimes hard to see the structure of the tree (when the tree lines are not painted).
