Savegames are not listed on the homescreen based on the "savegames" directory contents (needs retesting)
Build 2109 (and earlier).
I order to run the new build I had to get rid off the "runtime" directory which contains "savegames" directory. I backed up the savegames before deletion of "runtime". I run doomsday.exe, then I quit. New "runtime" directory has been created. I moved my "savegames" there. I run doomsday again. The savegames are not listed on the home screen but they are seen from inside the game - I can load them there.

After repeating steps described above I see only one savegame listed in the home screen in Ultimate Doomsday profile and no other savegames even though savegames directory contains many saves for Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, Doom 2 Plutonia and Doom 2 TNT. All the savegames are visible in-game. However, they are not loadable due to "Incompatible Addons" message.

From your description, I think things are working as designed. The Home screen only shows savegames when it can reliably determine that they are compatible with a game profile. In the case of old saves, or saves made before the various metadata fixes that occurred during the late 2.0 unstable and RC builds, the compatibility check may prevent saves from showing up.
In any case, you can still load up a game via the in-game menu, and override the compatibility warning dialog by holding down the Alt key when the dialog is open. In this case, you are responsible for making sure that the currently loaded add-ons and other packages are compatible with the ones that were used in the save.
When a new save is written, its updated metadata should then allow it to show up in Home. If you are experiencing that a newly written save does not appear in Home even though you have the same packages available, please submit a new bug report for that specific situation and attach the savegame in question.
