This is deprecated. I don't use it anymore, since forms now have the attribute "has_changed".

The method form_changed() returns a boolean value. It is True if the submitted values of the bound and valid form are different than the initial values.

It works for me. Feedback welcome.

Set debug=True if you want to know what's going on.

# code was removed, because django has form.changed_data since a long time.

At least since django 1.0 forms have method has_changed() and an attribute "changed_data". I (the author of this snippet) will use has_changed() instead of this snippet in new code.
