    Not yet.

    10.12.4 just came out on 3/27. Typical turnaround for a new version of Composer to be fully tested and qualified for a new OS is in the ballpark of 30-days after the release of the OS. Although that has been a little delayed lately because these more recent versions of the MacOS have broken a great deal of things that everyone relies on. (Wacom drivers, GPU functionality and so on.)

    So please be patient. They're definitely working on it.

    Here's a post that goes into more detail if you need it:
