Bugs Fixed

Improved the detection when the log block that has the different number from what is expected, was caused by log block not being flushed to position xtrabackup is reading from or if it was caused by using incorrect last checkpoint LSN offset in our calculations. Bug fixed PXB-1497912.

Fixed false positive error: The log was not applied to the intended LSN which was happening even when the redo log was applied correctly. Bug fixed PXB-1505017.

xtrabackup_logfile was not compressed when xtrabackup --compress was used. Bug fixed PXB-1242309.

innobackupex wrote error message to STDOUT instead of STDIN which broke xbstream and tar stream. Bug fixed PXB-1503964.

Incremental backups did not work with MariaDB below 10.1.6. Bug fixed PXB-1505865.

Other bugs fixed: PXB-1493015.
