Sneak Attack in Core different from Beta!?

Rules Questions

In the Beta PF, we had a side note which said that sneak attack was possible against almost all creatures, expending from what D&D3.5 permitted.

Yet, in the new Core Rule book, I did not see such a mention... Has Sneak Attack reverted back to what it was in D&D3.5?

The previews of the besriary show us that there isn't a differnce between beta and final. I believe that sidebar was more for informational purposes for people switching to PFRPG from 3.5. As it's own ruleset they probably deemed the sidebar unessecary.

Precision damage (sneak attack among others) works now against everything except:

I didn't see it covered in the Core Rulebook, but the conversion guide states:

Note that the rogue sneak attack ability now functions against most constructs, plants, and undead. It does

not function against oozes, elementals, and incorporeal undead.
