The pentagram map on polygons in the projective plane was introduced by R. Schwartz in 1992 and is by now one of the most popular and classical discrete integrable systems. In the present paper we introduce and prove integrability of long-diagonal pentagram maps on polygons in (Formula presented.), by now the most universal pentagram-type map encompassing all known integrable cases. We also establish an equivalence of long-diagonal and bi-diagonal maps and present a simple self-contained construction of the Lax form for both. Finally, we prove that the continuous limit of all these maps is equivalent to the (Formula presented.) -KdV equation, generalizing the Boussinesq equation for (Formula presented.).
