      With SVN 1.8 the additional option --force-interactive has been introduced with this commit: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1424037.
      This option is not documented at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.8/svn.ref.svn.html. But the CLI exposes the following (via svn st --help

        --non-interactive        : do no interactive prompting (default is to prompt
                                   only if standard input is a terminal device)
        --force-interactive      : do interactive prompting even if standard input
                                   is not a terminal device

      It seems that it always runs by default in non-interactive mode even with useNonInteractive set to false (https://maven.apache.org/scm/maven-scm-providers/maven-scm-providers-svn/maven-scm-provider-svn-commons/svn-settings.html) when being triggered from the maven release plugin, therefore with mvn release:prepare you might see the following issue

      Even though SVN was triggered without the option --non-interactive it still won't run in interactive mode due to the change in 1.8. Therefore the svn-setttings.xml should support to enable the new option --force-interactive so that the SVN will interactively ask for the credentials (instead of being forced to pass that via -Dusername and -Dpassword when triggering the mvn goal).
