Export -> Export location -> Choose -> (some folder on ramdisk, I can create subfolder here) -> "Vybrat složku" (czech windows) -> "The specific folder is not writable"

Were you able to export to RAM disk in the previous Lr versions? Is the folder really not writable?

In previous lr versions it was impossible too. Folder is writtable. And from "choose folder" dialog is possible to create subfolder and new file in this folder.
Next experiment:
Copy photo to ramdisk -> add folder to lr -> develop -> save changes -> "photos have read-only access".
Next experiment:
Web -> Export -> OK, web gallery is exported on ramdisk
Only some functions in Lr has problem with writing to ramdisk.
system: W8.1, ImDisk virtual disk driver as ramdisk
