you can use svn blame <filename> to who changed a line of <filename>. Then
there is svn log [filename]. This will print the svn history and if you
provide a filename, only the history of that specific file. Another handy
thing is the svn diff command. This is used to see the changes between 2
revisions. You can find short help using svn help [command].

now, this item is just enabled when it is possible to create one and disabled

The action is created in src/cirtuitview.cpp: CircuitView::CircuitView().
