FortiADC 5.3.1 offers the following new features:
Server Load Balance

Radius L7 SLB keep client IP address
When FortiADC connects to the real server, it will use client IP address instead of ADC address.

WAF input validation policy supports multiple rules for each type
Only one rule for each type can be configured to the input validation policy in 5.3.0. From 5.3.1 on, however, multiple rules are allowed.
HA supports non-promiscuous (unicast) mode
FortiADC supports multicast (default) and broadcast heartbeat before version 5.3.1, but MSSP cannot use promiscuous mode for FortiADC-VM HA in their cloud infrastructure. Now FortiADC supports non-promiscuous (unicast) mode HA in VMware platform.
