svn update will normally add new files. I suspect the issue in your
case is that you have checked out a subdirectory (e.g. trunk), and the
new files were added to a different one (e.g. a branch).

I don't think there is such a command. You can use "svn ls -R" to list
all the files in the repository, but you'll have to filter the list
