 > To me, it seems like it refers to either block-based Widgets screen,
 which is [https://make.wordpress.org/core/2021/02/11/bringing-the-power-
 of-blocks-to-widgets/#comment-40699 not included in WordPress 5.7], or
 Full Site Editing, which is not a part of 5.7 either. So I'm a bit
 confused about the accuracy of this sentence. Or is it referring to
 something else instead?

 It references the one of the editor sections further down the page:

 > You can do more without writing custom code
 > Full-height alignment: have you ever wanted to make a block, like the
 Cover block, fill the whole window? Now you can.
 > Buttons block: now you can choose a vertical or a horizontal layout. And
 you can set the width of a button to a preset percentage.
 > Social Icons block: now you can change the size of the icons.

 So, you have more control over the layout and design of your site without
 needing to add any custom CSS.
