Hey Jason, “Layout blocks” are a type of content block, which is designed to gave users an extra layer of customisation (defined by their developer). Think of them as mini-templates within a page, that can house their own content blocks. This may look like two column layout for example.
It hasn’t been built yet but it would probably be built as a new block type, so devs could still choose whats more appropriate. The layout block takes a slightly different approach in quite a few aspects but yes they are trying to achieve a similar thing. Users can build template structures to place their blocks, they can apply style variants.
