-Re: Troubles with compressed message set

Figured it out.
In Message.scala, CurrentMagicValue is set to 0; should be 2. This was
causing my client to attempt to decode it as a v0 message. Changing the
value to 2 solved my problem. Seems like a trivial change, so I'll let
you decided if you want a Jira or not.
From my previous example,
should be 2
messages to set their offsets
