I'm not sure if it's going to be viewed as a good idea, but I'd suggest,
while keeping non-inline symbols in the sources so that the symbols are
still emitted for binary compatibility, for the declarations in the
headers to be inline functions instead.

This way software built using the old API built against the new library
would use the new ABI already. Although this could come to the expense
of forward-compatibility of the library.
