<h3>Update: Pulsar Discoveries from FGRP4</h3>
<p>In August 2014, we began the 4<sup>th</sup> Einstein@Home survey for gamma-ray pulsars, or
"FGRP4". This survey incorporated many new advances that we learned during our previous
investigation of blind search methods. In addition, we were able to utilised the superior "Pass 8"
data from the <i>Fermi</i>-LAT team, and search in longer data sets than ever before. In
combination, these improvements led to FGRP4 being our most sensitive survey to date.</p>
<p>We are very pleased to be able to announce the first set of results from FGRP4. Including the
discovery of PSR J1906+0722 at the beginning of this survey, these bring the total number of
gamma-ray pulsars discovered by our Einstein@Home volunteers to 18. You can find the details and
plots of all the new discoveries below!</p>
<p>We are currently working very hard to study all of the results from FGRP4, and we are hoping to
present these in a series of papers in the near future. For now, as FGRP4 begins to wind down, we
are excited to announce the start of our next survey, "FGRPB1". The "B" here stands for "binary";
for the first time, Einstein@Home will be used to search for gamma-ray pulsars in orbits with
companion stars, similar to the search which discovered PSR J1311-3430 but on an even larger
scale.</p>
<p>As always, we are extremely grateful to all of our volunteers, especially those whose computers
contributed to these new discoveries. To say "we couldn't have done it without you!" would be a terrible
understatement!</p>
