not a stable version... i think you know it...

you're supposed to fill them in acrobat reader (or, maybe, in other pdf
readers which support the form functionality).

is this what you have tried?

basically, you only need ghostscript only for importing eps and for
using the print preview (which for most uses you can replace by the pdf
generation). so: you're mostly safe without it.

have fun
