Linux kernel 4.9.80+ is the latest just released for the 3B+. Phil likely hasn’t had a chance to update the installer for that yet. I’m not sure if 4.9.24-v7+ is Jessie or Stretch? @gadgetoid would know though.
Release notes for Raspbian are here https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/release_notes.txt

Keeping ahead of the kernel releases was proving somewhat laborious, so I switched to DKMS instead which is detailed here: https://github.com/pimoroni/rp_usbdisplay/tree/master/dkms
