Hidden in plain sight: E@H discovery of an elusive gamma-ray pulsar
We are glad to announce the discovery of a new gamma-ray pulsar hidden in plain sight in data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.
The object has been discovered by the computers of Connor Barry of Lafayette, Colorado, USA and Rich Johnson of Hayward, California, USA -- Congratulations!
The scientific paper has been published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters. An open-access preprint version is found here.

To learn more about it, check out the press release (a German version is also available here).

Thanks to everyone participating in Einstein@Home and enabling such exciting discoveries!

First Einstein@Home Newsletter
Dear Einstein@Home volunteers,

February 19th was the tenth anniversary of the Einstein@Home launch. A lot has happened in the past decade, and thanks to your support, the project has become one of the largest distributed volunteer projects on the planet. Thank you for helping Einstein@Home to do great science!

We would like to begin Einstein@Home's anniversary year by launching the Einstein@Home newsletter. Four times a year, project scientists and developers will tell you about our exciting science. In each newsletter, a handful of Einstein@Home team members will report on what they have been up to, and what their plans for the future are.

Our first newsletter features updates from Bernd Machenschalk on how the project operates, and from M. Alessandra Papa on Einstein@Home's latest and most sensitive gravitational-wave hunt. Benjamin Knispel brings you up to speed with the search for binary radio pulsars and Holger Pletsch has news on the Fermi gamma-ray pulsar analysis. Enjoy!

Website performance problems resolved!
Hi everyone,

We resolved the performance issues of our main website. As it seems the performance now even surpasses that of the original setup - nice. There might be a few quirks left in terms of missing resources or broken (internal) links. Please let us know when you find any.

Thanks for your patience!

Einstein@Home scheduler URL changed
The URL of the Einstein@Home scheduler was changed. Clients should automatically adjust to that, there is no real need for manual intervention. Until the Clients have recognized that change, you may see "file not found" error messages. The Clients should recognize the new scheduler URL after 10 such failures. If you want to speed things up, you may "update" the project manually a few times to skip the automatic backoff time.

Gravitational Wave S6 Directed Search (CasA) ending
We are nearing the end of the "S66CasA GW run". This means that only relatively few tasks of possibly remote frequency bands are available for this application, possibly resulting in an increased download volume per task. If you want to avoid this, you may opt-out of the "Gravitational Wave S6 Directed Search (CasA)" search in your Einstein@Home preferences on the web site.
