XULRunner is not a frozen API but instead delievers a set of XUL toolkits. Some of the XULRunner applications will only work on specific versions of toolkits. The current thinking of XULRUnner version number is for it o be matching the number of the corresponding Gecko milestone.

Developers can also be allowed to specifiy what is the minimum and maximum version of the toolkit is requierd to run the specific application. This is currently implemented as an option in the .xulapp file. The applications can specify the MinVersion and MaxVersion for the toolkit versions that is required. XULRunner will check this constraint on the application and refush to run those who do not pass the version test.
