Just check our docs, or open any TSVN dialog and hit F1. The icons are
explained there.

The revision graph only shows you 'copies', i.e. the revisions where you
copied a file or a folder to a tag/branch.

This is Subversion. Every commit creates a new revision, not just for
the file you commit but for the whole project. So showing a graph with
every revision would grow immense.

You can try a nightly build if you want, the revision graph there has an
option to show really all revisions. Just don't try that ever on e.g.
the Apache repository!!
(unless of course you have a 60' monitor, 10GB RAM and a 20GHz processor

Show log, select the revision, right click. Choose "Save Revision
as...", or just "Open" or "Open as...". Or ...
(read our docs - there are multiple ways to get an earlier revision back).
