I'm sorry, but that's not possible. Subversion doesn't provide that
information during an update, and TSVN can only show you the information
it gets.
But you can click on the "Show Log..." button after the update has
finished to see all the revisions you updated. You can see all the
authors including the log messages there just fine.

But definitely not from us - we're busy enough with TSVN.
