Resolution

The PAGE STATUS lines printed at the start of the ARCHIVE LOG and PRINT LOG have always been there, they are not new to 19.0.
These messages contain debugging information which relate to the pages read from the log area. There's usually no need to be concerned with the information in these messages.
The STATUS is an IDMS error status and would normally be 0000 unless there was a problem reading a page from the log area.
If the STATUS is 0000 then the date and time of the first log record in the page is printed.
Following the time is the record type and status, these correspond to the fields in the #LGRDS dsect.
In the above example, '6' means it's a statistics record.
The status field that follows means:

S SAVED (CAN BE RE-USED), the record has already been archived
L LOGGED (NOT_YET_SAVED), the record has not yet been archived
