Thunderbird 24.1.1 was recently released, and although that has a fix for the binary compatibility bug, the fix only works for addons compiled with that version or later. So unfortunately once again I have to do a quick release, but hopefully this is the last time.
ExQuilla version 24.5.3 is now available for Linux that should work with Thunderbird 17.* and 24.* This is only an issue on Linux, so Windows and OSX are unaffected and remain at version 24.5
