Developers and operations folk were grateful and excited to see the 1.0 release of Vagrant, an open source VM provisioning/management tool that seems to be coming out of obscurity with the help of the DevOps movement and specifically Patrick Debois.

New on the blogosphere today is a super-useful little Vagrant plugin from Juarez Bochi that takes screenshots for all active VMs.  

After finding a command on VBoxManage for taking VM screenshots, he decided to wrap it in a script after which Igor Sobreira, who blogged about the idea,  found out about vagrant plugins.

The result was the vagrant-screenshot plugin.  and here's Igor's usage example:
$ vagrant screenshot -o
[vagrant] Taking screenshot for default
[vagrant] Screenshot saved on screenshot-default.png

Hopefully this plugin helps a lot of Vagrant users, or brings more awareness about Vagrant's power in general.
