No, you can also "Show Log" from the Repository Browser, no need to check out first.

SVN itself does not provide that functionality.

Workarounds are:
- Use the "Show Log" on the Repository Browser directly for the URL.

- Use "svn ls url" for the repository root, and then pipe the output through "grep" or a similar tool.

- There's 3rd-party software which allows to search SVN repositories (I tested none of them myself...):

- You can create a git-svn mirror of the repository, and then apply any of the solitions for searching in a GIT repository.
