You can use "hg pull -u" to update (and "hg pull -uv" if you want to see the list of updated files).
One immediate thing that I'm missing from Bazaar is that 'bzr commit' invokes my editor and always shows me a 'diff -u' in the commit message buffer. This is incredibly handy because I don't have to remember to do the diff in a different window, and I always have all the information I want right there to craft the commit message. It doesn't look like this is possible with 'hg commit' though, right?
