Installer packages for Sagemath 8.2 have been posted for macOS10.11 and for macOS10.13 in the last week or so. Are there plans to have installer packages for macOS10.12 as well? (Basically I'm wondering whether I should wait a week or two to upgrade, or just go to Sagemath 8.1 for the year.)

Have you tried the macOS 10.11 and macOS 10.13 versions? They might just work for you.

Another solution is to build Sage from source, it works well.

This does not address my question.

I would suggest it might, since in the past nearly all Mac versions have been "forward-compatible". The 10.11 one (which I think I created) should work on 10.12 as well. We can't make a 10.12-specific binary unless someone volunteers a computer to create them on, however, and most people with 10.12 computers on the development team probably are already on 10.13 now.
