It would be nice to have the possibility to specify resource count - for 
example:
resource notebook, count 5
resource car, count 3

The program should show the (over)loading of the resources accross projects

It is somewhat strange to specify resource count for human resources which 
GanttProject only supports. Two clones of joe@example.com :) ?

Why only human resources should be supported? There could be more generic 
approach.
The resource could have an attribute which specifies what type of resource it 
is.

In case of human there would be a 100% as maximum and units would be hours.
For "hw" resource the user would specify the maximum and units would be piecies.

In projects I manage I need somehow to monitor usage of cars, notebooks etc. 
because they are shared accross teams. Having the information of possible 
bottleneck is very usefull.
So far I did not found a simple-to-use (free) tool that supports this..
Thank you for your effort, ganttproject is a nice tool, in any case - even if 
you decided to not to support such feature.

Could be, but now there are only human resources. So probably the feature 
request should be "support material resources".

Right, that is correct.

I have just check similar tool - OpenWorkBench - which supports material 
resources. Even it supports more types, it is unusable. I was not able to 
specify, that 1 notebook will be used for the whole task (every day for the 
task). I have the choice or 1 nb for 1 day or as much nbs as days..
There were more strange things like shrinking the task with respect to the 
resource (what led to one day long task), but what I was trying to say is that 
once you decide to implement such feature (so far it has status "New") I can 
help you to specify the requirements from user point of view (at least mine 
piont of view ;-)).

Even simpler: a resource can be anything, and has a user-set "availability", in 
arbitrary units. For humans, this can be FTEs or %, for gadgets it may be a 
count, for money it may be dollars, ...

The only thing the code needs to know is whether the resource is consumed by a 
task (paper, money) or not (labor, gadgets). A simple "consumable" checkbox 
would do; beyond that the code does not need to know anything about resource 
"types".

I see that bit more complex in the point of distinguishing type of resources: 
labor and gadgets are not consumed by the task - thats true,  but if you add 
more resources of type labor (humans) the task duration should shrink. In the 
case of gadgets not.

What happened with this feature request? Is it possible to add material resources to a project in Ganttproject?

If it was possible, this request would have been closed.
