The latest version in DSX mixes the stage progress with output

It looks like this is a new defect that was not present previously: the notebook will show the Spark task progress in text (e.g. for a statement like and will mix it with the output for Scala notebooks. Here is an example:

[Stage 15:=====================================================>(196 + 3) / 199]+---------------+------------+-----+-----------------+------------------+---------+---------+----------+------------+-----------+------------+-----------+--------------+---------------+------------+----------------+
|TradingStrategy|TradingStyle|total| ...

Disabling the progress in the menu of the notebook does not help resolve the issue. The behavior stays the same.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? As data scientist, I would like to see the output without being mixed with Spark progress info.
How should it work?
