The Objective-C language evolves semi-independently of the run time (you can write programs in Objective-C 2.0 running on i386 and ppc32, whose Objective-C runtime is version 1). Objective-C 2.0 (the language) features require Mac OS X 10.5 or later, while 1.0 features are available as of 10.0.

Keep in mind you can add methods runtime in objective C. IOW a library can
construct tobject differently.
