Adding columns to existing content types - not updating

We deployed site columns and content types through xml definitions in features. When we update the content types by adding a new column, new columns do appear in SharePoint Designer 2010 but when pages are created from those page layouts, columns are not visible.

We see this in 2007 and found some solutions but these are code-base. Any alternative that guide us to make changes in the XML or any other file?

Add new content types to multiple libraries


We use MOSS for document management and content types for document types (i.e. specification, quote, PO etc.)).  We would like to add additional content types to our libraries.  I was hoping to find a tool that would help me to propagate these new content types ad I am not a programmer.
