In 8 years of operation, the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi satellite has impacted our understanding of gamma-ray pulsars dramatically. The LAT now sees over two hundred pulsars: the largest class of GeV sources in the Milky Way. They are diverse – radio loud versus quiet, young versus millisecond, in evolving binary systems versus isolated, and so on. Relatively few of the GeV pulsars have also been seen in soft gamma rays. After an overview, we present 10 new radio pulsars, six young and four recycled, for which we detect gamma-ray pulsations.
