"-Uncanny Dodge II (as per EE) now grants immunity to flanking and thus sneak attack from flanking except from rogues four levels higher than the character. This is hardcoded with EE".

Is it posible from EE choose this feat as class or general feat? because now is very powerful, for example, the barbarian gets a great improvement with this feat.

I haven't heard anything anywhere that makes the claim about the UD tree getting opened up (I doubt it will be, but you never know), but this is more of a bug fix than a decided buff. It had always been the intended effect of UDII to have that flanking immunity. It just never worked. Never officially fixed in a patch until EE. It's now more accurate to the PnP equivalent.

Ranger
-Further brought them in line with 3.5E PnP with the following changes:
-Hit Dice changed from d10 to d8
-Number of skills per level changed from 4 to 6 (6*4 at creation)
-Two Weapon Fighting moved from level 1 to level 2 and Improved Two Weapon Fighting moved from level 9 to level 6
-Removed Medium Armor Proficiency

On second thought, the underlined section makes me pause.

Rangers didn't have Two Weapon Fighting, they had a unique feat called Dual-Wield, granting them Ambidexterity and Two-Weapon Fighting. Have they lost access to Dual Wield, or has it simply been moved to level 2 and the wording was imprecise?

Do we know if:

A) It is counting total character level, or class level of the class that granted it?
and
B) It is referring to sneak attacks from someone with rogue levels that is four levels in total character levels higher, or someone with four more rogue levels than the UMDII character? Or with four rogue levels higher than the UMDII character's class that granted UMDII?

I assume its probably "character level" in both cases, but it's worth inquiring.

Not entirely sure; the Beamdog release notes were fairly vague. I would encourage you to test in-game with two other players.

Yeah, it's Dual-Wield.
