We report on the preliminary extension of our work on cataloging the GeV sky to approximately 7 years of CGRO/EGRET observations with special emphasis on a search for transient sources. The search method and significance levels are presented. Our initial results on 13 possible transients indicate that 3 may be new gamma-ray sources. Sixteen new steady GeV sources are also detected, 3 of which have never been reported as gamma-ray sources.
