Release notes have now shown up at

 SeaMonkey 2.53.9 contains (among other changes) the following major changes relative to SeaMonkey

    There is now an option to clear browser history during shutdown bug 1621445.
    Uninstall plugin command for ChatZilla bug 541719.
    Update icons used in ChatZilla status bar bug 1710238 and bug 1710249.
    Make ChatZilla understand mIRC color code 99 bug 1710298.
    Implement IRCv3 basic CAP negotiation bug 1717539 and CAP LIST and update CAP ACK and CAP LS bug 1710313.
    Use Unicode instead of images for emojis in ChatZilla bug 1711375 and add some extra emojis bug 1711376.
    Use SeaMonkey's configured web search rather than a separate one in ChatZilla bug 1712498.
    Add a networks editor to ChatZilla bug 1716232.
    Implement IRCv3 away-notify bug 1717543, chghost and userhost-in-names bug 1717544, self-messaging bug 1722212 and WHOX bug 1722214.
    Link to SeaMonkey website in debugQA for verification sites and development section bug 1685606.
    Send button should be disable until we have a recipient bug 104973.
    Remove need to use a modifier for marking messages as unread bug 1719216.

I was going to say that there are no new security features, but lower down the page it says:

SeaMonkey 2.53.9 uses the same backend as Firefox and contains the relevant Firefox 60.8 security fixes.

SeaMonkey 2.53.9 shares most parts of the mail and news code with Thunderbird. Please read the Thunderbird 60.0 release notes for specific changes and security fixes in this release.

Additional important security fixes up to Current Firefox 78.13 ESR and a few enhancements have been backported. We will continue to enhance SeaMonkey security in subsequent 2.53.x beta and release versions as fast as we are able to.

So presumably the same issues that were fixed in 78.13esr. I see it is already marked as elevated.

Builds on 11.0rc3, seems to work ok.

Compared to the current mozconfig, we should drop the mention of -j1, reinstate system nss (that was fixed a while ago), and again remove system cargo: that is no-longer accepted, it seems unlikely that it will be reinstated since so much of the current firefox code relies on a forked cairo.
