The 1.0 release was announced on March 6th by Mitchell Hashimoto. This is two years to the day after the first development release of Vagrant.
According to Hashimoto, the big news for 1.0 is having installers and packages for all supported platforms. This includes Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.5+, and several Linux distributions including Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, and CentOS.

It supports creating instances in just three steps, multi-VM environments, and provisioning VMs using Chef, Puppet, or shell scripting. See the documentation for all the features.
