The "Show all" button in the log dialog is a menu button. If you click
on the arrow on the right side of that button, you'll get a menu: click
on "Show Range...".
That brings up a dialog where you can select a revision range. And as
with all TSVN revision dialogs, you can also enter dates there in the
Subversion date format. Examples:

{2002-02-17}
{15:30}
{15:30:00.2000000}
{"2002-02-17 15:30"}
{"2002-02-17 15:30 +0230}
{2002-02-17T15:30}
...

You can get a list of valid 'revisions' if you enter something invalid
(e.g. "{") in the revision edit control and hit the OK button - an error
balloon will show up which explains all the valid 'revisions' you can
enter, including all the possible date formats.
