64-bit (Win64) Thunderbird Releases for Windows you mean?

No not yet and it is not needed like 64-bit builds is needed for Mac OSX and Linux.

There is a 64bit build available for the current TB Beta Thunderbird 60.0b7. I wonder if it will be included in the next release?

Firefox had Win64 builds on the Beta channel for several versions before finally having Win64 for Release as of 42.0 and then making it more visible as of 43.0 on http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all

Really? That far back?

My comment about TBird, with a little more detail, is that there is a working 64 bit TBird in the current Beta candidate. However there are 7 betas in this cycle, so far, and only the last one, number 7, has a 64bit build. And only in the third build of candidate 7.

The status of releasing 64bit isn't going to change just because you see something change in the build system. Yes, you can download a 64bit build now from some URL. But there is no ETA to do anything beyound that nor is it officially supported. We have more important issues to deal with in getting a quality version 60 out the door.

When you see something in an offical blog post, or release notes, or on an official Thunderbird web page, then you will know it is available and supported.
