Notes for Application Developers
So far card profiles have been static, that is, the set of profiles on a card has never changed after the creation of the card object. While that has never been promised in the API documentation, it may be that some applications have the assumption that the profiles are static. Due to the nature of the Bluetooth protocol, it has turned out to be necessary to be able to add profiles to a card after it has been created. So, make sure your application doesn't crash or otherwise behave badly if new profiles suddenly appear on a card. It's best to prepare for profiles disappearing too.
It is now possible to track operation state via a callback using the newly added pa_operation_set_state_callback().
