I see they have released in the last couple of days.

What about the remaining two in debian.svn.org?

They don't apply cleanly to 0.2.4.

Yes.  Have a look at the Debian library packing guide:

My understanding is that the symbols file only details the first version that 
specific symbols appear.  Thus the correct answer is to leave the symbols file 
at 0.2.3.

I don't think you need to change the rules file as 0.2.3 and 0.2.4 are binary 
compatible, ie you can leave it at 0.2.3.
