I find the result of mutect2 in gatk4.0.11.0 differs from in vcf structure.
why this need a change? and for example in new version
GT:AD:AF:DP: the value is 0/1:31,34:0.522:65:
but I once read something in somatic vcf, the first value of AD does not stands for ref reads, is it true, thanks a lot.

and can you tell me AF is usually smaller or bigger then the value in AD(I mean first /(first + second), here 34/(31+34))
