We mentioned it several times already. Citadela product family is the best block-based theme & plugins for Gutenberg. Now it’s official and confirmed by WordPress developers. Full-Site editing is coming to WordPress very soon.
WordPress 5.7 has been released just 2 weeks ago. The WordPress team is already planning a new WordPress 5.8. This new version will be released in July this year. There is also version 5.9 planned for December, but there are no details about this version yet.
Full-Site editing implementation
The WordPress team is currently analyzing the Full-Site editing feature’s actual state and will decide on the final date when it will be released to the public and included in WordPress.
There are two options: WordPress 5.8 or WordPress 5.9.

I think for we humble concept designers, knowing what you mean by “block-based” would be great. Can you refer me to a really basic tutorial about how blocks differ from having to hire a coder to make my sites?
Block-based theme is a theme that is fully compatible with WordPress blocks. This currently applies to content editing, but very soon whole page including header and footer will be managed by blocks. It’s the future of WordPress that we’re looking forward to. It’ll bring “industry standard” into WordPress administration. Currently there are just too many different page builders which is confusing for users. Reasons for that fragmentation are historic and date back to WordPress 3.x and 4.x.
There are many good articles on the official WordPress website. For example https://developer.wordpress.org/block-editor/how-to-guides/block-based-theme/
