I don't think there are any problems with Sierra unless you happen to be using some templates that have certain items in conflict and haven't updated via TLU. Also, we've seen some problems that may be related to some included images in certain documents. Outside of all that everything had been very stable.
Now we wait for MacTeX-2017/TeXlive 2017 to get released. My testing of that system has shown all good updates (especially lua(la)tex) so I'm looking forward to the release which should be coming in the near future.
