In the next version of Lightroom, can they introduce an angle bar in the crop and straighten tool that aligns vertical lines as well as horizontal?

The current tool works on vertical lines as well as horizontal. If the angle you draw is greater than 45 degrees, it assumes a vertical. If less, it assumes a horizontal leveling.

Or do you mean correcting perspective using both horizontal and vertical rulers used one after the other?

The Lens Corrections / Basic will automatically correct for horizontal and vertical but only if there are straight lines it can see and use.

Make sure you're familiar with the new upright feature. It takes horizontals and verticals and.. into consideration.
