XULRunner is not a frozen API but instead delivers 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 to be matching the number of the corresponding Gecko milestone.
Developers can also be allowed to specify what the minimum is and maximum version of the toolkit is required to run the specific application. This is currently implemented as an option in the .xulapp file on Macs and in the application.ini file for Windows and Linux. The applications can specify the MinVersion and MaxVersion for the toolkit versions that are required. XULRunner will check this constraint on the application and refuse to run those who do not pass the version test.
