PHP 5.2 is still supported, no reason to upgrade for security reasons.
The changes between 5.2 - 5.3 - 5.4 are quite noticeable,
see http://de.php.net/manual/en/appendices.php .
You would upgrade if you need the new features, or you need to upgrade your
and use the bundled PHP version.
The newest is generally best.
Performance wise, the newest version 5.4 is said to be "the fastest PHP ever"

Re: PHP Update
AFAIK PHP 5.2 is still supported by some Linux distros by backporting
important bug fixes, but the "official" support ended with 5.2.16 in
December 2010, see <http://php.net/archive/2010.php . 5.2.17 fixed a
critical vulnerability and was released 3 weeks after 5.2.16.
