This version of WooCommerce ships with a new suite of product blocks, including:

These blocks have been added to their eCommerce-focused collection under WooCommerce in the Block Editor, which has been part of WordPress since 5.0, aka Gutenberg.
WordPress & PHP Version
Note that there is no change in WordPress and PHP requirements for this version.
