Scott Kevill today announced a preview release of GameRanger 3.0, the leading Macintosh online gaming service. The release marks the first look at the native Mac OS X version of GameRanger (it remains backward compatible with Mac OS 8.6 and higher) and has been completely rewritten with ground up. Kevill told IMG that this version of GameRanger "shares no code with the previous version."

Here's more from the official press release:

Version 3.0 has been totally redesigned and rewritten from the ground up, featuring full support for Mac OS X in addition to compatibility with Mac OS 8.6 and 9.

GameRanger provides hours of entertainment for interactive game players around the world, supporting online multiplayer gameplay for over 90 game titles, with highlights including Age of Empires II, Aliens vs Predator, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Quake III Team Arena, Risk II, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Scrabble, Stronghold, and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds.

GameRanger is the first and largest internet multiplayer game matchmaking service for the Macintosh. Introduced over two years ago, the GameRanger community is home to over 80,000 registered members playing more than 90 popular game titles spanning classic, action, strategy and simulation. GameRanger Technologies is located in Perth, Australia.

GameRanger 3.0 requires Mac OS 8.6 or later (including Mac OS X). With MacOS 8.6 - 9.2.2, it requires CarbonLib 1.5 or later.
